Allegiant by Veronica Roth

17383918Series: Divergent #3
Pages: 526
Release Date: October 22, 2013
Publisher: Katherine Tegan Books
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

The faction-based society that Tris Prior once believed in is shattered—fractured by violence and power struggles and scarred by loss and betrayal. So when offered a chance to explore the world past the limits she’s known, Tris is ready. Perhaps beyond the fence, she and Tobias will find a simple new life together, free from complicated lies, tangled loyalties, and painful memories.

But Tris’s new reality is even more alarming than the one she left behind. Old discoveries are quickly rendered meaningless. Explosive new truths change the hearts of those she loves. And once again, Tris must battle to comprehend the complexities of human nature—and of herself—while facing impossible choices about courage, allegiance, sacrifice, and love.

Told from a riveting dual perspective, Allegiant, by #1 New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth, brings the Divergent series to a powerful conclusion while revealing the secrets of the dystopian world that has captivated millions of readers in Divergent and Insurgent.

Note: No spoilers for the first two books!

I am so dead inside. This book was just so amazing. I don't get how it could be so damn amazing. I mean, when I first read that huge plot twist at the end, I freaking screamed (in the car). I didn't know whether or not this is how I wanted the series to end. It took a whole for me to realize that it's most definitely not how I wanted it to end, but it's a magnificent way to end the series nonetheless.

To me, Divergent, Insurgent, and Allegiant are about so much more than some characters in a dystopian society. To me, these books represent the choices you make and how they affect you. And Allegiant most of all taught me that I need variety in my life, and that I need to realize I need to be smart, brave, selfless, peaceful, and truthful all at the same time. I can't just be one.

In all, this book series is by far my favorite--ever--not just because of my absolutely love for the characters and this world but for the lesson that I have learned from my experience of reading them.

I was so apprehensive about the wrap up of this series, as I am with every final book in a series, so much so that I read half and then stopped reading for a few hours because I just couldn't handle it if it didn't reach my expectations.

Let me tell you: Allegiant took my expectations, ripped them out of my heart, stomped on them, and then shoved them back inside my body. Yeah. That is how much I loved this book.

In conclusion, this book series was so amazing, and I have a feeling there are going to be many rereads in the future. Hopefully I'll be able to purchase them in hard copy soon. Ebook version of Tris and Four just don't cut it for me(;
